The purpose of the Municipal Active Transportation Policy Template is to provide a document that will guide a municipality in developing its own active transportation (AT) policy. The template is meant to provide a high-level policy which outlines the commitment the municipality has to AT. Municipalities may copy, add to and revise in order to tailor it to their needs. The intent is that all Nova Scotia municipalities will adopt an AT policy. In addition, see the AT 101 document for guidance on creating an AT Plan.
The purpose of the Policy Development Process Guide is to guide a municipality in developing, modifying, amending and approving policy.
The template was developed by the Ecology Action Centre with the support of the Province of Nova Scotia.
